The Platonos Projects are a group of sub projects aimed to provide Java developers with a stand-alone plugin engine as well as a pluggable Swing application framework similar to other RCP (Rich Client Platforms) available. The goal is to have an out-of-the-box runnable Swing application with the more common pieces applications contain, such as preferences, help, file I/O choosers, configuration, and more all via plugins which can be left out if not needed. Building upon the shell is very easy by simply adding plugins that provide extended behavior for existing plugins, or adding new plugins that will then be extended by other plugins.
FCKosc puts a WYSIWYG HTML editor into OsCommerce's admin section in product descriptions, newsletters, and the main page. FCKosc is built on FCKeditor. This editor will work in IE 5.5+, Firefox 1.0+, Mozilla 1.3+, and Netscape 7+. FCKosc requires no changes to OsCommerce's database. Minimal changes were made to the files, which helps reduce the posibility of conflicts with other additions. FCKosc is easy to upgrade as new versions are released.
Config::Maker takes a file with data in simple hierarchical format (similar to BIND and DHCP configuration files) and several templates, and produces the text by filling in the values. It is mainly useful for creating related configuration files. It can be used to generate firewall configuration scripts, DNS zone files, DHCP configuration files, a reference from a single file with all users and machines, etc. It's useful when you are not satisfied with keeping information synchronized in several places, but don't want something as complex as cfengine. Snippets of Perl can be used if all else fails.
Horror Squad pits modern and high tech weaponry against the supernatural in a squad-based tactical game. You can face off against the Wolfman, Frankenstein's monster, and the ancient Mummy using pistols, automatic rifles, bazookas, swords, and shotguns. It is a true strategy game that uses a turn based gameplay system. It can be played against the computer, or multiplayer in a hotseat mode.
The XML Forms Generator Eclipse plug-in takes a model-driven approach to forms generation, using as a starting point either Web Service Description Language (WSDL) documents or XML instance documents having Eclipse Modeling Description (EMF) backing models. The generated forms adhere to the XHTML and XForms 1.0 standards, and can be viewed in popular XHTML/XForms renderers.
IBM Pattern Modeling and Analysis Tool for Java Garbage Collector (PMAT) parses IBM verbose GC traces, analyzes Java heap usage, and recommends key configurations based on pattern modeling of Java heap usage. If there are any errors related to Java heap exhaustion or fragmentation in the verbose GC trace, it can diagnose the root cause of failures. It provides rich chart features that graphically display Java heap usage.
Crogai is a mix of crowd simulation, artificial intelligence, and genetic algorithms. It is possible to set up simulations and test different AI in a full 3D environment with a small physics engine, terrain, collision handling, etc. Crogai is inspired by the OpenSteer projet and uses steering behaviors as building blocks for the AI. The agents can graze, hunt each other, and emit spores for reproduction. A genetic algorithm allows the agents to evolve, and let them decide whether to do so or not. In addition, the examples provided by the project make nice screensavers.
Arachno Ruby IDE is a development environment with an Emacs-like editor, an integrated very fast GUI debugger, source code browsing, live syntax checking, a local Apache environment for developing/debugging CGIs and integrated FTP, and a GNU diff frontend. The debugger offers an easy way to debug CGI and ERuby Web applications. It runs on Windows 2000 and XP, SuSE Linux 9.1/9.2, and other 2.6 kernel Linux distributions.
